Market day

In addition to teaching music, occasionally Dave also does set-up and sound for musicians affiliated with the school he teaches at.

This past Saturday, he had a gig to set-up for at the Milton Farmer’s Market (a town about half an hour away from us) and he asked me if I’d like to join him. Really, I think he just wanted to use Dory to haul gear, but I went along anyway.

After the speakers were set-up and sound check was done, I was released from roadie duty to go explore the market.

They close down a chunk of Main Street for it, and there’s a nice assortment of vendors.

I love all the colours of summer!

I got Dave a zucchini and some fresh green beans. Mom was in need of onions, so I got those for her, as well as a basket of peaches for us to split.

I did manage to resist buying myself a bunch of roses…

But I faltered when I came across a lady selling perennials. I ended up coming home with a Physostegia. I’d never heard of it before, but it’s a little like a Foxglove. In a few weeks it should bloom looking something like this:

That was well worth lugging musical gear!

    That’s a great market!! I love it when they have live music at our market. It definitly makes me want to buy more because I stay longer.
